Welcome back Owls Class! Our first topic is based on the theme of WWII: Sandbags and Sirens!
Our curriculum immersion day explored the key reasons 'why the world went to war'; our children experienced a day in the life of a child evacuee and we conducted a real life evacuation to appreciate and understand what life was like for many children in 1940. Children used an ordnance survey map to plot a suitable route too. We also visited a local memorial where Canadian pilots lost their lives during WWII. Children made links and discussed current issues we have seen on the news recently when people become displaced and have to make long and arduous journeys. We used thought-tracking to compare our feelings during our walk.
